On Wednesday July 22, 2015 in Green Bay, WI, former detective Randy Winkler, takes the stand at an evidentiary hearing for Keith Kutska-one of six defendants in the 1992 paper mill death of Tom Monfils. I’d like to point out the reason for this extended hearing date. Mr. Winkler had a vacation planned during the July 8-9 court dates and was given permission to take his leave despite being subpoenaed.
During the first phase of the hearing we heard testimony from witnesses that described his actions during the investigation. They resembled tactics far differently than what he describes in the video clip I’ve provided. On Wednesday, he will have the chance to clear the air, once and for all.
One final note: After the convictions were handed down and Mr. Winkler achieved success in solving the largest case to date in Wisconsin history, he disappeared into obscurity and was never heard from again…that is…until this whole case was revived close to two decades later…
Sometime during the morning of Friday, March 28, 2014, Brian Kellner, one of the prosecution’s star witnesses in the Tom Monfils 1995 murder case, died from a blood clot, (possibly) induced from treatments he was undergoing for cancer.
I found the following listing in the Green Bay Press Gazette the next day on Saturday, March 29, 2014. Even though it was a last minute addition to the paper with little time to elaborate on the life of this person, it still saddened me to note the lack of substance it contained, despite Mr. Kellner’s vastly publicized and historically critical role in what continues to be one of the most publicized court cases in all of Wisconsin. I couldn’t help but feel extreme loneliness and isolation for this man.
